GP Earnings

All GP practices are required to declare the mean earnings (eg. average pay) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice.

The average pay for GPs working in the North Harbour Medical Group surgery for 2017/18 was £82,280.00 calculated before tax and national insurance. This is for 5 full time doctors.


The average profit for 2019 was £108,000.


NHS England require that the net earnings of doctors engaged in the practice is publicised by 31 March 2016. However, it should be noted that the partners additionally have significant professional and personal expenses which have not been deducted from this figure.

It should also be noted that the prescribed method of calculating earnings is potentially misleading because it takes no account of how much time doctors spend working in the practice and should not be used for any judgement about GP earnings, nor to make any comparisons with other practices.
